Young Living Essential Oil Giveaway!

Oil A Day Giveaway Winners

Have you been curious about Young Living essential oils but don’t know where to start before you invest in a Premium Starter Kit?  Maybe you’re thinking “Why can’t I just buy oils from the grocery store?” or “Why should I choose Young Living over all of the other brands?”  We get it.  There’s a lot to think about, and ain’t nobody got time for that.

That’s why our essential oil education group was created.  It’s a place where you can explore these questions (and more) at your leisure.  There you will find videos, articles, testimonies from other Young Living essential oil users and thousands of friends ready to answer your most burning EO related questions.

Right now is a really great time to join our oil group because for the last few months or so we have been giving away a bottle of Young Living essential oil a day (Monday through Saturday) to lucky winners allover the world.  Yes, this giveaway is open to anyone in the world (unless you’re already using Young Living oils through some other team—sorry!  We have to keep this special for our team members and people brand new to Young Living.)

How it works is every morning (except on Sundays) we post a picture of a Young Living essential oil from the Premier Aroma Collection along with a description of what that oil can do for you.  However, the name will be blurred out, so you will have to dig around a little bit so you can figure out what the mystery oil is.  Some are super easy, and others will be a bit more challenging.  When you know the answer, comment on the photo in the giveaway thread and if you guess correctly, your name will be entered into a drawing for that oil.  The winner is announced the next day (or Monday morning for our Saturday oils.)  It’s really fun and a great way to learn about oils you haven’t tried yet.

We’ve given away NINETY-THREE bottles of essential oil so far, and we still have a bunch more to give.  So do yourself a favor and get in the group!  It is a secret Facebook group, so you must be my Facebook “friend” for me to add you.  Not my FB friend yet?  You can add me by clicking on my Facebook profile here and sending me a friend request.  Once I’ve accepted your request, it is helpful if you mention to me that you want into my oil group.  I don’t add people to the group all willy nilly.  🙂

And please don’t worry.  This group is strictly a tool for sharing oily wisdom and our goal is not to hard sell you.  That would just be annoying.  😉  Not sure what essential oils are and want a little bit of background before you join the group?  No worries.  You can get a brief run down on the home page of this website.  I hope to connect with you soon, friend!  And to those of you already following along and playing every day, good luck to you!

p.s.- Are you on Instagram?  If you are, you should totally follow @thejoyfuloilers.  We post teasers to the giveaway oils every day, but you do have to be in the Facebook group for your guesses to count!

A Visit To Young Living’s Family Farm in Mona, Utah!

A question I hear A LOT, is “Why Young Living essential oils?”  Well, for me, the short answer is purity, integrity and transparency.  It’s the Seed to Seal promise.  Before I was introduced to Young Living essential oils I used to buy a brand sold at an online herb store and at my local health food store.  I bought them because my family went fully organic in 2012 and those particular oils I bought had a USDA organic label on them.

One day, I was alerted to the fact that these oils were not exactly what I bargained for; they were being sold as fragrance, and even the USDA organic peppermint oil had a warning not to use it internally.  Upon further investigation at the FDA’s website, I learned that those oils could be labeled organic if the oil component of the liquid was from organic plants, but that they could add other ingredients (such as synthetic fragrances) without disclosing those ingredients since that is proprietary information.  There is something called the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA) which says that ingredients must be labeled on packages, however “This law is not allowed to be used to force a company to tell ‘trade secrets.'” and according to the FDA’s website, “Fragrance and flavor formulas are complex mixtures of many different natural and synthetic chemical ingredients, and they are the kinds of cosmetic components that are most likely to be ‘trade secrets.'”

Because of the way essential oils are treated by the FDA, it is SUPER important to know where your oils are coming from.  See the picture at the top of this post?  That’s where my clary sage comes from. 🙂  (Pardon the quality; I took all of these pics on my phone because I forgot my hubby’s DSLR at home.)  I just got back from Utah a few days ago where I got to visit the Young Living family farms in Mona.  While I was there I got to see fields of lavender, clary sage, melissa, german chamomile, goldenrod, yarrow and more.  I can’t even begin to tell you how yummy it smelled.  So fresh and filled with an aliveness!  Good vibes for sure.

My friends and I also visited the distillery while they were distilling juniper and blue yarrow, and we saw the bottling plant.

If you ever happen to be cruising down I-15 through Mona, Utah, please do yourself a favor and stop at the farm.  It’s family friendly, gorgeous and it even has a cool visitor’s center where you can buy stuff and take it home right then.  Who doesn’t love instant gratification?

I mean really, how pretty is this place?!

The beautiful thing is, you don’t have to be a Young Living member to visit it either.  You can tour the greenhouses, walk through the fields, watch the distillation process and even watch them bottle the oils.  While I was there I even got to help plant some yarrow, which was awesome.  What other essential oil company in the world offers that kind of transparency?  This, my friends, is why I choose Young Living for myself and for my family.

If you’d like to hear more about the Seed to Seal promise, you can check out the Seed to Seal website.  If you’re not yet a Young Living wholesale member, what are you waiting for?!  Go grab your Premium Starter kit and I’ll help get you rollin with the oily life. If you get confused during the sign up process (remember: you have to choose the *first* option that says “save 24%” to get a kit), give me a call and I’ll walk you through it.  My phone number is (760) 658-0655 and my member number for the enroller/sponsor fields is 3471989.  I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about Young Living and one of its many farms.  I hope to connect with you soon!
